Subject: Let's Get The BBD On This Site If It's Possible !!!
I was VERY surprised to read a few years ago from a collector's notes on etree that this MSR may actually be Betty's Board in discuise. Well, if it's true, I guess I have to eat a little crow since I was sooo adement a few weeks ago to espouse her expectedly excellent craftsmanship in recording The Boyz on this day. I had yet to hear an "average" production from her until I heard this one. Usually, her stuff is way above average with a lot of warmth and just the slightest reverb. And the vocals are never too high in the mix. I admit it's clean and mixed pretty well but, this sounds more like the typical, sterile SBD.
Betty's stuff always leaves me wishing she had been the official Mixer. I am not alone in this adoration of BBDs. Alas, it seems she just didn't have the magic touch that day (if it's hers), since things aren't quite what I had hoped for...especially with the vast majority of reviewers giving five stars? I hear mixing outside is much, much harder than indoors, so I can't be too critical. And though I may have been put in my place by demanding the BBD, there is still something within me that says "This really isn't her Kezar. You will come upon that sweet 'Betar' sound one of these days." Still love ya darlin'. xxxooo.
I also agree with Patty. There are a lot more five star-worthy '73 shows than this "super" show. Other than being three solidly played sets, there is nothing truly exceptional here... OK, so it's probably the best Box Of Rain I've ever heard; and I love He's gone w/ Phil's baritone w/ most of disk three. But I think a show should be reviewed more for quality rather than quantity. God knows we have enough quantity around here. Does it seem to you that 75-80% of all these shows get four & five star ratings? So what has happened to three stars being an "average" show? Ah fanatics. Gotta luv'em. PS. Enjoyed your sharing those experiences Elvis and Pig. Always love little tidbits like that. Seeing Phil on page 462 of the Compendium brings a whole new perspective. And young, nubile, naked ladies. Mm Mm. Definitely five stars. :-)
Subject: RIGHT ON UNCLEPETE
My first show was in the spring of 72, needless to say i was blown away, here it is 40 years latter and I'm still revisiting my past. I became dissalusioned in the early eighties and stopped going to live shows. In the nineties it became fashionable to say you'd been to 201 shows, unfortunately i forgot to count so i just say alot. I do remember some of the specifics of some great shows, but i was having way mto mmuch fun to remember what songs were played or what the encore was! I do remember a dark star from 9/21/72 that changed my life. BUt to remember specific's i would have to had taken notes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Subject: Saw it live
It was a great show and this was to be my 2nd Dead concert. I had seen the boys at Stanford on 2/9 and was blown away by that marathon show. Loved this Kezar show....
A week later I'd see Led Zeppelin at Kezar. What a great summer!!!!!
Subject: my first tape i got as a newbie
like many others i'm sure, this was the first show i got along with barton hall 77 show when i first trading dead shows in th late 80's.i still listen to this show today and it is hard for to disagree that this along with other are the best shows the dead ever did. Ihave no problem with people saying that about these 2 shows.Almost if not flawless live shows.
Subject: Annoying buzzing
One or two people have commented on the constant buzzing throughout this show but most people seem not to notice it. I certainly hear it and it's very annoying - it occurs throughout Playin In The Band for example. A relatively minor example of it is at Loser 2.41.
I guess most people are listening to it via loudspeakers where the noise isn't so noticeable. I was listening to it on mp3 travelling on the train this morning and it drove me nuts. I guess it's ok for loudspeaker listening but avoid on headphones unless you've got a fairly high tolerance level for this kind of thing.
Subject: Who can remember this stuff?
This is certainly one kick-as show. What cracks me up, though, are the folks who remember all the crazy shit that was going on during THIS show. Like the guy talking about the cop dancing during Sugar Mag. Jesus,it was THIRTY FIVE years ago! If you remember that kind of detail you didn't have a good time! I remember all kinds of crazy stuff that happened at shows, for sure. But, to say that such and such happened at THIS or THAT show from 30+ years back...Holy Shit! Anyway, Jerry's low in the mix which is too bad because his playing is great. Music...5 stars. Recording...4 stars. Check out the wailin' China Cat
Subject: Oh, Hell Yeah!
What more can be said that already hasn't been? A fantastic "Playin'" and the 3rd set rocks! Keith IS playing his ass off and Bill's drumming is stellar throughout. 5 stars is hardly enough. An outstanding show with an awesome set list, and 3 sets full of material. What's not to like? This my friends is the Grateful Dead in all their glory. Eat it up while it's hot!
zzaj sucks -
Subject: very good show
hey alright, KEZAR !
The site of the last Throbbing Gristle show*
(first time around, before the reunions..).
I remember getting an invite to that* in the mail. A large picture of charles manson with 'only 2 U.S.concerts' written at bottom. whew! who knew?
anyway, yeah, this G.D. show from 73 is pretty decent. sound slightly tinny on trk one.
Rmindsme of the eight track I used to listen to,
travelin in colorado, montana,etc in like 75
The best memory of any show, ever. I had an aud tape for decade that captured the smell and feel and color which I find somewhat lacking from this version. Don't get me wrong, I love having such a clean copy, the music is still sensational- but it only hints at the way the sound washed over the crowd and built and decayed around Kezar and the city hills. The way Phil's bass overmodulated and distorted, the way the people on the apartment roofs rode the waves of sound in the sparkling bright crisp spring air. Ahh.
Disco Stew -
Subject: Uuuummm.......This Show Rocks!!!!
This is a grate show. I'm not into Top 10/Best Ever stuff. Way too much music to even attempt to pigeonhole these shows into that. Instead, I prefer to rate these shows on the merit of the show played on the date. 5/26/73 was a good day. Ok, truth be told, it's fuckin fantastic. This show has it all, grate setlist, grate playing, grate sound quality. There a numerous high points in this show that undoubtedly you will groove to while listening, actually to many to list, just listen. But the He's Gone> Truckin'> The Other One> Eyes Of The World> China Doll, Sugar Magnolia is standout for me. I always enjoy a show that is just blistering down the home stretch.
Boogie with Stew.
Subject: lord i had to dance
this show is quality and quantity. a great setlist. listenin to HCS i've never felt so strong an urge to get up n dance. awesome 3rd set too startin at He's Gone>. i guarantee this will bring a smile to your face.
Since 77 -
Subject: Get this MONSTER show. It's Incredibly great!
Pile up all the shortcomings of this epic show, and they don't amount to a hill of beans. This is a great, great show. There was magic in the air at Kezar this day, big time. Highlights too many to mention. IMHO, one of the TOP TEN ALL-TIME shows! Scroll way down and read Dr. Flashback's review (my favorite reviewer); I cannot match his eloquence nor his encyclopedic knowledge, so I'll just say that I agree with his every word. Even if this show may not be my #1 all-time show, I think it would be my #1 "time machine" show, if you know what I mean.
Subject: Greatful Deat at Kezar
My wife and I were there. Took the bus over from her appt in Okland and spent the day. Waylon Jennings and the Outlaws were on the bill as well! My first Dead concert. Beautiful sunny day with great music. Would be a gas to get Waylon's set also.
Taper Malcolm -
My favorite show of all time. Has everyone got their Betty Boards of the show? It fits on 4 cds. I'd be delighted to hear from anyone that was there.
How come radio sbd broadcasts can't be downloaded here?? Dosen't seem right, shows that were broadcast live anyway I would think should be public domain.
Cheers, Taper Malcolm (San Diego)

Subject: Mark VI WOS/Garcia /Monitor/ Equip Malfs>Glory
This is a prototype Wall of Sound show I attended on a bright windy Saturday afternoon in Kezar Stadium. Advertised by BGP as "Day on the Green One" ~ an extremely excellent show. There are numerous technical quirks in this recording, to agree with what's heard on stage, but the Wall of Sound sound far outblox the defects. An amazing recording of an amazing show. One of the Grateful Dead's most personally endearing shows to its home audience ~ all 67,234 of us just hanging out at a barbecue. We all somehow knew that the boys wanted to play more, and would have just kept on playing, but time would not allow. There was a strict sunset music curfew placed by the Fire Marshal on that event. Despite the technical difficulties and the curfews, the music found the day. Very Very Special.
Subject: great show
this is one of those shows, jerry is on fire...guitar and vocals. TLEO is jammin.
Subject: Instruments Excellent, Vocals Low
My ONLY complaint with this show is the low volume of the vocals. The instruments are very well recorded and sound great.
Subject: maybe 3rd best of all time
IF you know how to get it.....get it
the 73-74 era jam between China Cat Sunflower and I know you Rider is called "feelin groovy jam"
Subject: An alltime classic
Enough said....period. sound quality=5; show=5+
Subject: truckin on
coming off such an amazing show in Santa Barbara the week before, they did it again in San Francisco. This show is burning start to finish... Playin is just fantastic, brilliant, blowing my mind again... every song sounds great. After an energetic Truckin, things get reallly special for a Bill and Phil duet into a fantastic Other One>Eyes... China Doll is crystalline emerging from still water. Fantastic.
Subject: Top Ten Show
One of the best, hands down. A must have show.
He's Gone > Truckin' > The Other One Jam > Phil And Billy > Bass Solo > Phil And Billy > The Other One > Eyes Of The World > China Doll among the best sequences ever. This performance is 'Top-shelf' vocally.
A superb sounding recording, probably a top ten.
This would make an outstanding official release.
Subject: china is a doll
the closing leg of this show is a must hear, if i could i would have everyone listen to china doll, it is perhaps the vocal highlight of the 1970's it's almost hard to imagine it without donna, and that has to say a lot, one can see where she fits in well.
Where is the aud copy? lots of folks in attendance right.
email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org happy to share with responsible listeners.
Subject: Premier Show
Tagged along with my big brother to this show. My first. Was only 13. First time reliving the moment, and its no wonder why I became such a fan. In my mind it was always a monumental show. Here comes sunshine...what a great time. thanks for letting me plug into the past!!!

Awesome show. had it on the other night while going to bed. woke up during intense sessions. great dreams
Subject: the music plays the band
I'm not one to make lists, but this show is special, and everybody should hear it. Top ten material. The whole band is on fire, and Jerry is definitely the driving force here. On top of mucianship of the hightest caliber by the whole band, Jerry has a feeling to his performance that is very deep out of the ether of the world type stuff. Everyone has already pointed out the highlights, but I must tell you, there is no lowlight or subpar rendition to be found on this tape. The Rider has a different rhythmic feel than usual which is very nice. Race is on, 1/2 step, HCSS, Box, Big River, He's Gone. Truckin, TOO, Eyes, China Doll, Casey, heck, just about all of these songs could be considered definitive versions, especially for this era. This show is a perfect example of why we all love Jerry so much. He is so tapped into the cosmos here, a mainline connection straight from his heart. With all due respect, don't pay any attention to previous reviewers critical of mix or sound quality, this is a very good (excellent to stellar by pre internet standards) recording of a stellar performance. For chrissakes even Donna is great, what more can I say. I am 32 and only saw the boys between 89 and 95. I love the eightes and even the 90's very much, but when I give Kezar a 5 star rating, it makes it very difficult to justify 5 stars for almost anything from the later era.
And now that I think about it, I've gotta give credit to the rest of the band. This show features some of Keith's best playing ever. He is using a Fender Rhodes type electric piano that adds another dimension to the regular piano that he seemed to favor. Phis is incredible, his bass solo in between Truckin and TOO is epic. Billy is on fire. Even better than his sure, steady, yet supple and fluent 72 sound. He (as well as the rest of the band) seems to be searching deeper into the muse. They are all really throwing themselves out there and landing with beauty and grace at every turn.
Subject: heady stuff...
so many '73 gems...and here is another one. man, this is a boat load of music. playin' is VERY tight.
a super listen, i think. but agreed, for the most part, not the best played versions/sounding recording you will find fron this outstanding year. still...amazing stuff.
p.s. skibida, how could you "hate" sugaree? picasso moon , I could understand...but sugaree? blasphemy... :)
Subject: KEZAR 1973
This show should be in everyone's collection. PLEASE release the SOUNDBOARDS. The Dead must correct their poor decision!
Subject: Decent Show
This show is a decent show that you should pick up if you dont have.. good sound quality good setlist
Subject: There's nothing like a five-hour Grateful Dead concert
I agree with the earlier reviewer - Keith is over-mixed and Jerry under-mixed. But the show itself is real good, especially the 3rd set. Still, I'll take 6/10/73 (RFK) over this show for this period.
By the way, every deadhead has one Dead song they truly hate. Mine is Sugaree. The 10 minute version here is no exception.
Subject: China>UJB-like jam>Rider!!!!!
Revised 10/27/05: OK. Let's get this straight... please. Mind Left Body Jam is NOT in the China>Rider segue. If you have the Grateful Dead Movie, on the second bonus disc with live concert footage, you will know it by The Other One > MLB jam > Spanish Jam > The Other One....something like that. The jam that became the China>Rider segue from 5/73 - 10/74 is known as the "Uncle John's Band-like jam." The chord progression is very similar in structure to Uncle John's band, although it is in a different key....mainly a D - A with C sharp bass - B minor - A progression. So, to clear all this MLB VS. UJB jam fuss up, they are totally unrelated....MLB usually appears somewhere in the middle of The Other One or Dark Star (check the October OKC fairgrounds show)....the UJB-like jam is definitely during the China>Rider segue, and happened from about 5/73-10/74. So, sorry for the lecture, but this really kind of bugs me that so many deadheads do not distinguish this correctly.
I can not believe there has not yet been one mention of this gorgeous transition on here!! When a buddy of mine in Norman, OK, gave me his 5th generation bootleg tape of this show (along with a good sounding tape of 5/8/77) back in the summer 1997, I was instantly hooked to live dead. I'd been listening to GD stuff for about 5 years...but nothing this good.
This transition from China to Rider is the coolest ever! Although it is a very early attempt at what would become the beautiful "UJB"-like jam later in the year and would develop bigtime into 1974, this one here is really special for me. It just has a certain feel to it that I've never heard ever again from any show. It is so damn smooth...Billy's beat just glides...it's not the straight ahead beat you usually get with this jam...he is bouncing and dancing on this one. And Jerry is floating around on the frets with such delicacy.
OK, enough for words...just download this show and hear the magic for yourself.
A Dude -
Subject: Size of lossless files is 1.4 GB, not 2.2 GB
I just wanted to help out those who look at this page and think "2.2 GB is a little too big for me".
In actuality, the total size of all the lossless SHN files for this show is about 1.39 GB.
And, you can verify that 2.2 GB is obviously wrong, by noting that the show is on 4 Audio CDs, and even if they were full, at 650MB per CD, that's 2.54 GB for WAV files, ie no compression.
And we know that SHN files are very roughly half the size, so 2.2 GB is not right - in fact, it may actually be the size of the show as WAV files.
(Read the other several dozen reviews to find out more about this fine GD performance.)
Subject: HOT DAMN!!!
This show is more on fire then elton john. i found myself playing air keys to several tunes, most notably big river. i love having the keys this loud in the mix. this show is so good it is rediculous. i have not even gotten to the third set and i am in awe. rivals my other fav the PNE show. 5 stars easily. OH, and the Playin' is the best ive heard... it reminds me of the post truckin jams of 73 and some stars from 74. and remember ladies... its not about the quality of the audio its about the quality of the show... and this show gets a 7 with a 4 for audio.
P.S. what is up with the alternate M&MU lyrics? The only other alternative lyrics i know of are left him laying there instead of dead ass... i was just wondering about why he maay have sang it this night and if this was commonplace for 73 shows or for may or for any other years... lemme know.
capn doubledose -
Subject: 31 songs
This has to be one of the longest on this site - It seems like this has been playing for hours. Great Playin, He's Gone, and one of the best El Paso's ever played. Interesting that one of the gusy that was there gave it only a 4. There is some great music here for sure but with few exceptions does not really get humming until He's Gone... The MLB jam going in the Other One is off the hook - There is no way to put into words how trippy that 5 mins is - 5 years before Hamza al Din. Other One is devastating... Garcia & Phil go off on the flanger & wawa - Phil owns Eyes. Sugar Mag & Casey Jones are exceptional.
Subject: Mind Left Body Jam
I believe the Beatiful jam between Chinacat and Rider is affectionately known as the Mind Left Body Jam, not the "UJB Like" Jam....This Jam began to emmerge in the Spring of 1973 and reached its peak of perfection, IMHO, in Portland on 5-19-74, when they hit that...THIS show is one of the highlights of a highlight year. From He's Gone to the end is perfection. Listen to Phil bang it out. He'll snap a few synapses in that Other One Intro..the Sugar Mags and Casey Jones absolutely SMOKE!! get it.... yesterday!
Subject: 4 hours of bliss
I really dont know what to say about this show other than download it. I've read about a *buzz* in the recording and a messy mix... well I don't hear it and if I did this is still a great show to have.
The sound is great, the setlist... magical, it must have been great to see the boys at this show. This recording is as close as I'm gonna get. At least until the time machine is developed!! Thanks for the great site and all you lovely people that upload the shows. Luckily enough I'm a shift worker so before my first night shift this week I
stayed up late put on my headphones and listened to this beauty all at once ! It was magical give it a go if you can :)
Patty Falafal -
...while this show is certainly well known as vintage '73 and does have some merits...there are equally/if not better played concerts in the year (I like 11-17-UCLA and 3-24 Spectrum for instance) and better sounding ones at that for my ear...but that is just me...I generally do not go as nuts over some of the so-called "super" shows as some others might...4 stars for me.
Elvis The King -
Subject: Naked Girl Holding On
Being held onto by a naked girl in a crowd of 30,000 certainly warrants a 5 Star Rating.
Subject: There's always a few!
It's 1973 and this show is great. Quit comparing these archival freebies with the lovingly doctored Dick's picks.
Subject: INVEST THE TIME
This is one of those shows where you need the time to savor. This 3 set beast is unbelievable. try to go start to finish on some weekend and you will be blown out of your house. Ranks right up there with Roosevelt NJ 74 as one of my favs from this time period
PHIL FACTOR -
I too hear the buzz. In fact, it kinda made me worry about the health of my dear tweeters at higher volumes. Sort of makes you think they may be "fuzzed out', damaged, blown, or something, Aside from the audio problems... this show is so damn good that not one superlative I can think of even comes close decribing the music that the boys, and girl, dropped on Kezar Stadium on this fine May day in 1973!!! Shows like this are the reason I write in "Deadhead" as my religion on surveys. They cover more ground than a bullet train on speed during these three sets. The entire band, individually and collectively, is on freakin' fire. The only reason I'm giving this show four stars is because of the "fuzzy buzzin'" coming out of my speakers. The quality of the music goes beyond five stars, way beyond. I really can't stress it enough: DOWNLOAD NOW !!!
Subject: great shows
Fast becoming my favourite show from '73.
He's Gone>Truckin'>The Other One>Eyes>China Doll outstanding music. For a 32 year old recording I can still appreciate what we had here.
Subject: great show!
I agree whole-heartedly with other reviewers - the boys are in great form.
However with respect to this mix: Jerry's guitar is too low, while Bobby's guitar and Keith's piano are a bit too high.
Are there any other mixes in circulation?

Subject: Get it
The show overall is pretty good, but you should get this one for the Last set. This is my favorite He's Gone ever. 73 was a good year for the song, but this one is the most emotional version I've ever heard. The jam is amazing... it is a true example of the band playing as one being. Listen to the He's gone> the end alone on a long drive, very loud. Oh, MAN! It's so good.
Plus...Keith is large and in charge on this show. And you can actually hear him play.
Subject: Dancing Cop
What a great show! I remember seeing a cop dancing on the top row of the stadium during Sugar Magnolia. And we all got bad sunburns. See your dermatologist and download this show, not necessarily in that order. Still only 4 stars from me though. Donna's pretty rough.

Subject: listening too close??
all i hear is a kick ass band and some terrible buzzing in the background.....if it is there, let us know fellow heads.....anyone hear it?? i do too bad they are rockin as usual
What everyone else said.
Wish I would have been there.
The Grateful Dead in top form.
Get this one.
Subject: That's what I heard...
I was there about fourty feet back from the stage, and when Jerry walked out he leaned over to Bobby and mouthed these words, "That's some fucking good acid, man!" They both started giggling and I knew that the show was going to be a uniqe experience. Sure enough, the band rocked deeper than I ever saw them that day. The part that I can't figure out though, is what happened to Phil's howling? That's right, I said howling! During the bass jam on The Other One he was howling like a coyote in heat! He was like an alien from the planet Scourget!!! None of the recoreded versions that I have ever heard have the howling. Well maybe his mike was off - who knows? Maybe this one will have it. I'll just have to listen and see. Yeah 6+ you better believe!
Nice sound quality. Nice jams. Nice dreams...kindly enters the cranium through the fleshy audio canals. Opens the skull and allows space to ooze in. Loosens the membranes, unwinds the spine. Splashes over the cardiac can .......smile.
Subject: Piling On...
Almost Four hours of great stuff. Definitely worth the download and burn. You get quaility and quanity with this show. Best website ever.
Subject: Stellar '73 show
But nobody's mentioned the Playin' yet! My favorite of all time. Great show all around, great Jack Straw too.
Subject: My Favorite Show Ever
I would give this show 6 stars out of 5. I have listened to many hours of the Grateful Dead, and the closing run from this show is my single favorite disc ever, anywhere, by any band. The rest of the show is great too, but the last disc is overwhelming.
The suite starts with a fantastic He's Gone. Full of energy, bubbling along, it ends with a terrific vocal outro followed by a wonderful jam. When this jam peaks it sounds like sunshine coming pouring out the speakers. IMHO, the best He's Gone ever.
Into a superb truckin'. Played hard and with precision, this version also ranks among the best I've heard. The final jam peaks strongly, then melts down, then peaks even stronger. Great stuff.
Then, a phil and billy jam into a deep space riff by the master into the other one. This stuff is not for the faint of heart as it really goes deep into space. The Other one coalesces from the outer reaches for one verse, then melts back into stellar insanity. The 1973 Grateful Dead at their very spaciest and best (and that's saying something).
Then, a wonderful terrific, awesome, great fantabulous Eyes. The jams between verses are a little brief, but the final jam is a monster. They blister through the jazz chord changes with alarming dexterity, moving a like liquid lightning. I'm an Eyes-a-holic, and this version is the reason why.
Then into a very deep China Doll. Again one of the best I've ever heard, with soulful playing and singing.
Then into a rollicking Sugar Mag closer, and more rollicking Casey Jones encore.
A few thoughts (more). One of the great things about this show is that everyone was playing at their absolute peak. Billy and Phil had some crazy ESP link goin in '73 and '74, and it was never better then at this show when they drove the steamrolling grateful dead beast with their phenomenal playing. Bob Weir is also tremendous during this show. His playing on Truckin', Other One and Eyes actually propels Garcia and the rest of the band onward. Great great stuff from the thin man.
Keith deserves special mention because this might very well be his best performance as a member of the band. He too is not relegated to playing complimentary lines only, but is tossing out musical ideas fast and furious, and pushing Garcia ever onward.
Then there's Jerry himself. I can't do justice to his playing at this show by words alone. Interstellar, groovy, intesne, mind-melting.
If I could only take one disc from one show to the dessert island with me, this would be it.
Subject: Pure beauty
I caught myself playing air-grand piano in TLEO...very tasty!!!

Subject: Top 10!
A truly amazing show and an all-time Dead classic.
If you wanted to turn on a friend to the Dead, this would be a good show to start with. Whatever your favorite Dead song - they played it tonight. Deal, Jack Straw, TLEO, Sugaree, Box of Rain, He's Gone. I could go on. They do - for three outstanding sets rarely equalled in my opinion on the short list of 3 set 70's shows. And the HC Sunshine is one of my favorites. Even the Ain't Woman Enough is good. I'm not kidding. The Other One features some earthquake bass from Phil (watch your speakers folks)and reportedly one of his favorite shows. This version reminds me of a firey dragon, parts of 2001 Space Odessey, a thunderstorm, minds exploding. You can feel the waves of energy moving across the stadium and out into your room. This show will steal your face, satisfy all your Dead desires, from rock to jazz to Cosmic Cookies. A must have. Good for parties and driving too, though you might have to pull over at times!!

I had a copy of the second set get really stuck in the tape deck of a rental car in Detroit years ago. The guys and I at the rental place nearly destroyed the radio getting that tape out. But no way was I leaving without it!
It's damn a man fine show people. The kind that makes you proud to be a Dead Head!
Subject: stadium sound...
One of the hilights of many in '73. Check out a sparkling H.C. Sunshine...too rarely played, but there are great versions of this tune in '73. The China Doll is especially emotional as well. He's Gone>Truckin..etc is worth noting. Uh, and did I mention 3 sets? C'mon...

You Can't Go Wrong Downloading This Show...unless you want something that is played horribly and recorded on a tape player made from cheese.
This show is awesome. I downloaded it merely to get "The Race Is On", and I got three sets of well recorded, fantastically played Grateful Dead. Every track is amazing. If you want quality, you have found it here.
Get this show today.
Subject: A '73 Must-Have...
Not much else to say about it... this show is really tasty. TLEO is really nice, the Truckin'into Other One by way of Phil jamming is really interesting. The He's Gone is also a really nice touch. Jerry does some really nice fills throughout El Paso even... There is just too much good stuff I can say about this show
Subject: One of the true classic shows
Set 3 is one of the best sets ever. It really does boast THE best Eyes ever. Peace
Subject: Excellent Show!!!!!
The seque from "Truckin' into TOO via "Phil's Pluckin'" is awesome! This SBD is incredible for 73' Please check out the "Eyes", it is the best version of 1973,..imho! Also, "China doll" may just bring you to tears!!!
